Westmoreland County football players to watch in Week Zero

Hempfield, sr., G/LB
There are few players like Ferretti, a three-sport athlete who also wrestles and is an outstanding thrower on the track and field team. Ferretti led the Spartans in tackles last season with 114, including 12 for losses. He also had 51⁄2 sacks. As a sophomore he had 93 tackles, 15 for losses, an interception and two sacks.
Ligonier Valley, sr., RB/LB
Miller is coming off a huge junior season where he rushed for 1,561 yards and scored 23 touchdowns. Running behind a veteran offensive line, Miller may easily eclipse those numbers in 2019.
Gbg. Salem, sr., RB/LB
Look for Putt to get more touches his senior season after rushing for 631 yards and four touchdowns on 97 carries in 2018. He may be used to catch passes out of the backfield, as well.
Latrobe, sr., WR/S
This could be a breakout season for Stevens. In 2018, he rushed four times for 44 yards, caught six passes for 63 yards and scored two touchdowns. Latrobe coach Jason Marucco is hoping for bigger numbers in 2019.
